Pinned topic Error creating component

‏2012-12-17T14:58:39Z |
Hi All,

I have a little problem when I try to create a component.
The error message is the headline "error creating component".
For example, the VOB is NVA_BSP,the Componet Name is NVA_BSP_HAL and the Root Directory is NVA_BSP_HAL
when I creat the NVA_BSP_HAL,the error message "error creating component" will appear.
but with the same step when I creat the NVA_BSP_Hal it will be successful.
so,I want to learn the reasons which caused the error and how can I get rid of the problem.
Thanks
Best wishes
ken

    This is likely due to a namespace collision with another meta-data object in the same PVOB. Object names are case-sensitive, so check the PVOB for other objects (components, stream, projects, baselines, etc.) that may already use that name.

      Thanks for your answer,the componet named NVA_BSP_HAL has really existed but it's hidden.When I use "desc -l " on the PVOB ,CC tells me: Error: Unable to find component.In this case,how can I get rid of the problem.
      I am looking forword for your answers.
      Thanks and best wishes!

        Run the following lscomp command and see if component NVA_BSP_HAL is listed:

        cleartool lscomp -s -obs -invob /your/pvob
        


        If it is, try your describe -long on it again like this:

        cleartool desc -l component:NVA_BSP_HAL@/your/pvob

          I did as you said and it listed all components except the component of NVA_BSP_HAL.This way does not work,so what can I do next?
          Thanks again for your help.
          Best Regards

            It must be a different object type then. It might be a stream, activity, baseline, branch, label or even maybe a folder. Cd to your PVOB and try your describe on each of those types. Ex:
            cleartool desc -l stream:NVA_BSP_HAL
            cleartool desc -l activity:NVA_BSP_HAL
            cleartool desc -l baseline:NVA_BSP_HAL
            cleartool desc -l brtype:NVA_BSP_HAL
            cleartool desc -l lbtype:NVA_BSP_HAL
            cleartool desc -l folder:NVA_BSP_HAL
            


            Not sure how much effort you want to put into this though, since it's not really hurting anything except maybe your component naming convention.
